Our walk was arranged as a private tour, following the itinerary for the Islay, Colonsay and Jura walks. Everything was perfect, from the setting up of the tour, the accommodation on Islay, the food, the walks themselves, and, above all, our guide Nigel Scriven. The whole experience far exceeded our expectations.
An excellent holiday with a knowledgeable guide and friendly group. The groups are never more than eight in number so accessing smaller sites never seemed overwhelming.
This was our first walking tour so we weren't quite sure what to expect. From start to finish the trip was fabulous. Very well organized, our guide Nigel's knowledge of the trails, birds and history really added to the enjoyment of the hikes and the variety of trails made each day a little different. Highly recommended.
Very good, professional service. From pick-up to drop-off and everything in between. And real thought given to what worked best for our group given our relatively short tour - 2 days. Much welcomed flexibility. Great guide and excellent company too. One suggestion - give him a Mike as his first class insight wasn't always audible in the back of the minivan!
Excellent trip, the walks were all good, and the guide was very well-informed and flexible. Would recommend this company to others.
really excellent. The sites exceeded expectations. The walking was great and everything from hen harriers to Scottish primroses were a real treat. Brilliant guide and good company. wont forget the 'Norse king' on Rousay in a hurry either!
The best holiday I have had in years.
A lot of beautiful sites during varied walks.
Very good guide who knows a lot and is very good with people.
Lovely guesthouse and good service!
The trip was perfect.
Frieda was a great organiser - I had to leave the trip early, and she made all the necessary arrangements for me, including logistics to Glasgow.
Our guide was Lesley, who was experienced, patient and caring.
The only suggestion that I would like to make is to increase the amount of walking per day. Average of 10km per day wasn't quite enough! =)
I look forward to my next holiday with aboutargyll.
Charming countryside, great people, very efficient organisation and a perfect holiday...
In September 2014 my friend and I left our husbands in the States and went on the stunning walking holiday offered by About Argyll Walking Holidays. From the moment we met Frieda the owner and Lesley our tour guide we began the holiday that went well over our expectations in every way. The hikes were varied (through the forests in the Loch Tay area and along the coast near Oban and the nearby islands) with a delightful visit to Glen Coe on the day we traveled from the inland to the coast.The hikes were all very 'doable' in length and terrain with stunning views. Both if the inns were first class accommodations with remarkable food and ambiance. Lesley's knowledge of the history, natural history and geology of Scotland further enhanced our experience. This holiday gets my highest recommendation.
